Some hair & grooming stuff we’re real...

 

HAIR-HEADER

With New York Fashion week in full swing we’re already finding ourselves bouncing around Manhattan from event to event while trying to beat this INSANE September heat. The last thing we want to worry about is sweaty, flat hair.

We’ve pulled together some of the hair & grooming products that are working to keep the hair game on point these days (yeah, some of them look really girly, but these products are no joke for the a good high & tight man cut).

2215478STEP 1. Big Sexy Hair Powder Play: Use this bad boy first. Once your hair is dry, lightly sprinkle throughout your hair. This crazy hair crack basically dirties up your hair and serves as an initial layer to keep things from falling flat (especially in these hot temps). Warning: use too much of this stuff and you won’t be able to run your fingers through your hair.

 

Mens-Firm-Hold-Matte-Finish-Clay-PomadeSTEP 2. Baxter of California Clay Pomade: A tried and true favorite. This shit is heavy and has mega hold without any shine. We use a tiny bit of this as our second step to give the hair a cool, lifted shape. (a tiny bit, less than a dime sized amount will do). Rub the gunk around your hands and then run your fingers through your hair.

 

a149111.001STEP 3: Jonathan Silky Dirt: This is the shit that gives the shine. Don’t expect much hold out of this creamy obsession, but it will make your hair look like you just stepped out of an editorial. Use a dime sized amount.

 

 

1248STEP 4: R+CO Hairspray: Just put your ego aside and forget about the bright red hooker nails on the bottle…this stuff is awesome. (one of our good friends who is a celebrity hairstylist in LA turned us on to this underground brand) Flexible yet strong hold that won’t have you smelling like an overly perfumed tourist while walking down the sidewalk. Just a quick spray will do.

 

nd.17STEP 5: A quick spritz of your favorite cologne and you’re out the door. (we’ve recently rediscovered one of our old school favorites, Terre de Hermes and remembered why we loved it so much)
